Pinterest Project Wrap-Up

I hope you enjoyed the Pinterest Project. I’ll continue to post projects from time to time, but this concludes the 31-day experiment. On a longer-term experiment, I have a feeling that even more of what is posted on Pinterest might not work out quite the same in my own kitchen and craft room. I chose to feature things I could either accomplish in a very short time, or things that I had supplies already on hand for. Someday, I’ll tackle something bigger! So, now back to normal blogging, posting freebies to Kindle books, and on to new things, such as promoting […]

Or, they can print 12×12 (and other sized) pages to slide into a traditional scrapbook. Or, they can order fully bound books from sites such as Shutterfly and Snapfish. Digital scrapbookers can choose from a host of programs to […]

The Pinterest Project Day 29: Organizing a Sewing Area

Pinterest is a place for building envy if you aren’t careful. The site is full of home sewing areas to drool over, and wish for. However, I don’t have such a space in my home. This room featured on the blog Sew Many Ways is awesome! And the Creative Living Blog has this cute little closet turned into a sewing space. On the day 28 Pinterest Project, I created a case for my iPad keyboard in 30 minutes. This is possible only because I have my space organized and ready to go when I need to sew something quick. I […]
